Good Monday Morning!

On this snowy, COLD, Colorado morning! lol Did everyone have a fun weekend? Productive? Lazy? Refreshing? Short (always!)?

Saturday we had our first playoff game for our varsity football team. It was home so dh and I trudged off in the rain/snow to sell shirts for the team. It wasn't too bad. We set up our 10x10 canopy next to the cheerleader's 12x12 canopy and thankfully they had a wrap-around wall that went almost all the way around three sides. Both of us also had propane heaters with dual heads on them. We were the most popular hangout at the game! lol One of the security guards got a bit close to my friend's heater and set his coat on fire! No one was hurt, but it was hilarious! rofl To top it of, we WON!!! Next week will be away, but there's a possibility of another home game, so we may have to suck it up again. Hopefully the next one will be warmer! We'd have frozen without our setup.

Sunday was lazy with just grocery shopping and basic cleaning for this week. One of my moms called me around 1pm asking if I could possibly take her kids because she was being recalled at 4:30 (military-just means she has to go into work). I told her no. MY weekend--MY time. Sorry, honey. I felt bad for her, but in no way regretted saying no. I work 55 hours a week as it is. I don't need to give up my weekend time, especially for her kids. Sorry, but her 6yo drives me nuts. This is the family that's moving next month. I'll miss the 4yo and the 13yo is pretty cool, but I won't miss the 6yo. I know--I'm terrible. Oh well. :p

Have an AWESOME week, everyone!!!

HAPPY MONDAY! I wish mine was happier- have a killer headache. Neck ache too. It is really bad. It started last night. The weekend was completely lazy- and overdue. We hung around on Sat went on a bike ride and to the park- then spend Sunday at my parents- they cooked a great lunch and Ed and I got to nap- can't beat that!!!

I have the opportunity to increase business for a pt dcb "R"- who is 5 yrs old. He currently comes on Th and Fr all day. Mom will be working next year and wants me to care for him all week- and drive him to his preschool in the afternoons 3 days a week. I have 6 kids in the pm and can only accomodate 4 kids in my car. I haven't told her no yet- trying to see if I can work something out. A neighbor friend of mine (and is friends with this mom) drives her kids to the same preschool in the pm- wondering if I can suggest working something out. Cause if I can keep R he'd be full time in the summer then half day kindergartener in the fall. Looking ahead.
